As a popular metal Youtuber and Twitch streamer, Nik Nocturnal has shown his audience that he is a skilled multi-instrumentalist and performer. After nearly a decade on Youtube, Nocturnal has amassed a following of more than half-a-million subscribers, with tens of thousands following on Twitch.
When he’s not doing Youtube, Nocturnal is a member of modern metalcore act Termina, which also features vocalist Andy Cizek (Monuments) and drummer Chris Turner (Oceans Ate Alaska). The trio just dropped their latest single, “Parasocial,” and it’s a banger featuring Whitechapel vocalist Phil Bozeman and Emmure guitarist Joshua Travis.
To go along with “Parasocial,” MetalSucks asked Nocturnal to tell us what songs are in his heavy rotation.
Darko US – “Dragon Chaser”
Ignorant heaviness with noises, it is bliss.
No Face, No Case feat. 33 Movement – “Reality Check”
One of the most random releases of 2022 that combines pure pissed breakdowns/riffs with random hardbass. It shouldn’t work, but it does in a disgustingly good way.
The Browning – “Pure Evil”
If you like electronicore with solid breakdowns then The Browning will definitely get you the extra rep at the gym.
August Burns Red – “White Washed”
An old core classic but God damn, that intro just gets you HYPED!
Periphery – “Make Total Destroy”
It djents, bro.
The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza – “The Alpha the Omega”
Joshua Travis and Phil Bozeman being breakdown gods.
Lorna Shore – Any song on Pain Remains.
You know why.
Slaughter to Prevail – “Baba Yaga”
Whether it’s the crushing Slipknot-esque riffs or the destructive breakdown, this track absolutely RIPS.
All That Remains – “This Calling”
Another core classic with sonic speed double kick, monstrous riffs and a sick AF solo.
Bleed From Within – “The End of All We Know”
Pure Metalcore BANGER!!!
